Night Drives in Hwange National Park

Safari Experiences

Going on a night drive in Hwange National Park can be an incredible experience, as it provides the opportunity to see nocturnal animals that are not typically visible during the day. Some of the animals you may encounter on a Hwange night drive include lions, leopards, hyenas, genets, civets, and a variety of other nocturnal species. If you’re planning to go on a night drive in Hwange National Park, be sure to dress warmly and bring a flashlight. The night can be quite chilly, especially during the winter months, and a flashlight can be helpful in illuminating the animals you encounter.

It’s important to note that night drives in Hwange National Park are only permitted with a licensed guide and in designated areas. The guides are trained to navigate the park in the dark, ensuring that the safety of both the visitors and the wildlife is maintained. The guides will also provide insight into the behaviors and habits of the animals you encounter, enhancing your overall experience.
